I guess it is time for a little honesty, so here goes: I liked book one, and I wanted to fall in love with Lily as much as I was liking Kyle. I was thrilled that the frustration with Lily and talking about her family was put to rest. The fact that she has a best friend and neighbor and doesn't really know him was frustrating. So this book was LOVE. Yes birds were singing and floating on little fluffy white clouds. She gets to the house where she grew up and the flood gates open. Everything from ...more

Yup. Alicia did it again.

Flawless, exquisite read I couldnt get enough of.

My Beautiful is the second book in the Beautiful Series and it continues to follow Lilys and Kyles story.

Lily still didnt left the past behind. It is still with her every day. She is still fearful. She is still on her journey to be better, to heal, to be strong.

What to say about Kyle? My Gosh! I love him!

He is Lilys rock. He is smart, possessive, strong, supportive and so hot.

In the book we got to see pieces of his past. W

While I loved the first one and enjoyed this one, it just didn’t “wow” me like Beautiful Chances did. I think my favorite part of book one by far was Kyle and thankfully he was just as swoon-worthy this time around.

“Telling him that I loved him, to me, was a huge step. I could never take back my words. I would never want to take them back.”-Lily

Lily is of course still having a hard time coming to terms with losing her family. Now she has Kyle, her rock,

I enjoyed Beautiful Chances but My beautiful is even better! I felt we got to see Lily grow a lot throughout the book and I was pleased to see her making progress with her inner struggles. Parts of the book are hard going as some of the emotions she goes through are devastating to read about and got me all choked up.

We also get to meet her extended family. Her overprotective cousins, Damon, Jason and Blake are brilliant and provided me with some great laughs. All the relationships in the book ar

Could Lily & Kyle's story get any more beautiful. What a freakin breath of fresh air. No DRAMA. A book I just lost myself in. The passionate love these two share is......beautiful.

Crossing my fingers that book 3 sees their love and their story grow.

My Beautiful is the second book in the Beautiful series by Alicia Rae. Kyle and Lily's story continues in this book, and should only be read if you have already read Beautiful Chances. This series is one that I have really enjoyed, and I find myself becoming lost in Kyle and Lily's beautiful story. There is so much to overcome and yet their love makes that possible. If you haven't read this series yet, you should definitely check it out. This

My Beautiful starts off right where Beautiful Chances left off. So with that being said you MUST read Beautiful Chances First! These books aren't standalone.

Lily...where do I begin with her?? This woman has so much heartache it's heartbreaking. She's lost so much, and she's trying to learn how to overcome it all. Three years ago she lost her parents and sister in a car accident...after that day she left Colorado and moved to Florida where she writes books and does photography. She met Kyle

What can anyone say about a masterpiece? Because that’s what the Beautiful Series is. A true magnificent masterpiece.

The first book was a pure excellence and the sequel rivals that. My Beautiful is a book perfection!

Our characters grow all the more. Even though, there is no time gap between the two books, we see that Kyle and Lily both grow individually and as a couple. They are finding their way on this world together, overcoming anythin

Reading everyone's five star reviews I'm wondering what went wrong for me when reading this book. The only reason it didn't end up being a DNF for me was my determination to find out if my guess was right as to who Lily's stalker was. Getting there took me a while, as I had to repeatedly convince myself to pick this book up. I wasn't a huge fan of book one either, but I thought it would be the gateway to a much more enticing book two. While this book definitely had more drama, it still was not a ...more

To see someone you love trying to live normally every day, getting rid of the demons of her past must be very hard. But he stood beside her, ready to catch her every time she falls. His arms were ready when she needed support – and with that, he totally had my

My Beautiful is the second book of the Beautiful series by author Alicia Rae. it is a continuation of the first book of the series Beautiful Changes and should be read in order!

we meet up with Lily and Kyle where the first book ended, them in Colorado, her being at her house for the first time since she left 3 years ago. Kyle has told Lily how he feels about her, wants to start a real life with her, share his life with her. she is still unsure if she can be everything that he wants, but she is t
What a fantastic second book in this series. I loved it! It picks up right where the first left off and keeps going. This is such a great story with wonderful characters who were just so easy to fall in love with. I felt so much for Lily, I don't even want to imagine what going through what she did would be like. I was so glad that she had found Kyle and the he cared for her so deeply. I was happy that she opened herself up to him, because there really wasn't any way to deny the attraction they ...more

Okay so to say that I loved book one in this series was big for me because people had mixed reviews but I loved every minute of it. Then I started reading book two and I was totally blown away! You hear me blown away and I could not believe the twists and turns and all the secrets and lies that came out and yes there is still that danger lurking in the back but I can't quite figure it out so I was just reading along trying to figure it out and then holy effing hell I got some glimpses of things ...more

I loved the book. I liked Kyle's character from the beginning of book one and in this book his character develops even more to the point that he makes you want to up your standards in your own life. You wish all guys were like this. Tough but gentle, Rugged Manly Man type but also knows how to take care of a woman. I loved how easy going he is and is able to establish relationships with other guys without being pretentious and snooty. He has a lot of patience with Lily who I like because she is ...more

Let me start with the story concept is really good. If I could get more story and less sex it might have been a much better book. I appreciate attention to detail and I look for it when reading. As with my review of book 1, both the details in the story and the facts that were incorrect are once again in this one. Have you ever heard the phrase "Less is More"? It seemed every other page or ever scene there was 2 pages of detailed sex scenes. OK I get it, they love each other, they can't keep the ...more

My beautiful is a fantastic series. I love how Kyle and Lily stick together through all of the heartache, leaning on each other. Kyle's strength is just amazing. You can't help but fall in love with Lily too. She has been through so much and with this authors writing, you feel for her in so many ways.
This book kept my interest from beginning until the very last page, where I wanted more. The family dynamics of this book along with the love story, mixed with a little suspense made it a definite

Oh God, how I managed to get through this book is beyond me. It was the second of three books regarding Kyle and Lily and it was totally pointless. I skimmed over a lot of it in the end, particularly the sex scenes, they were so repetitive as was a lot of the ordinary dialogue. This book should have been condensed into the first one as I don't think there was enough of a story to warrant a further book. The third book is about Kyle and his secret past but from reading the first two I'm not going ...more

My Beautiful starts off where Beautiful Chances left off. Lily and Kyle stand together for her to face her past and to take everything in stride, one step at a time.

Lily revisits her old family home, her remaining family and friends. She finally finds the strength within herself (with the help of Kyle) to go through her family's belongings and take what mementos she wanted to keep before selling off the house.

Quite curious indeed, in the end I'm glad they found out who that person is and for me its quite devastating knowing that person really loves her sister but you can't blame that all to her.

It was more interesting than the last one, but still very mechanical writing. I just felt like the dialogue wasn't what people actually say... The mystery wasn't a mystery. It was ridiculously easy to figure out. I felt like Kyle should have had it almost immediately if he was smart at all. I started skimming all the intimate scenes because there were just way too many and they felt really repetitive to me. But I still want to read throughout the characters and their stories.

Wow...what a powerful love story. I stayed up all night reading this one. What a great book about love, family, friendships, and heartache. This book has given me a major book hangover as they call it. Lily's character is so inspirational to those of us who have lost loved ones. Kyle's strength is honorable, and swoon-worthy. I will definitely read more from this author.

Love, that is all you feel between Kyle and Lily. He is such a great supporter of her. To have a man stand by your side when your trying to deal with the past. I never saw the one part coming. I won't go into detail to spoil it for you.

Another great book Alicia Rae. I can't wait to see how the story ends.
